Thank you, Jurgen. The "Strongbow" correspondents in every detail with the british tug paddlers. In this coherence it seems not very important, whether she is a historic or a fictional construction, but she is a technical interesting one. You now will not need too much time until finishing an excellent made functional model.

Thanks Damien.

Slow, slow, slow progress and some disasters to report here.
I made the stern grating, painted the funnel and spilled some paint.

The stern grating work went without mayor difficulties and looks OK to me.

Small disaster: During the painting of the funnel some of the blue paint did not pass the masking-tape-test when I had masked that part for painting the black top and lower cone.
I tried to mask off the cone to repaint just the blue part but that turned out to be very complicated and I could not get a straight line. So I opted to raise the black part and paint the damaged part black.
I am happy with the outcome.

Big disaster: When prepping the wheels with my precious zinc-chromate primer I managed to tip over the paint can and spill most of the paint.  :c002 It is precious because I use very little and was able to purchase a 1/4 liter can a few years ago - still was 3/4 full. Now no one sells any broken quantities any more and I will have to buy 1 liter. At the speed I am using this primer that will last for over 100 years.
Anyway see the pictures.
Fortunately no feathering paddlewheels were harmed in this incident.

Some small details added.
Companionways and skylights front and stern.
Still need to cut the window frames.
